The ultimate goal that God is working toward in your life is to make you like Christ.
Romans 8:28-29 - And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
God’s goal has always been to make us like his Son--for us to be perfect.
1 John 3:2 - Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.
Ephesians 4:13 - This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God's Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ.
John 17:19 - And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy (sanctified) by your truth.
Growth is not your work; it is God’s work in you.
